How to live after we take your job

Sep 4, 2006

Northwest Airlines laid off some 60 workers and on the way out the door gave them some free advice: start dumpster-diving for food and get used to wearing used clothes!

This was no joke – 101 similarly insulting “tips” were in the employees’ lay-off “assistance” packets.

Workers could just see their poor bosses dumpster-diving for caviar and using hand-me-down tuxedos and limos!

But Tip # 53 said it all. “Bicycle to work.” Where? To what job? You just laid us off!
